Construction Update August 13, 2010

Vertical construction is moving full speed ahead on both the residential and retail areas of Newbury. All three builders are currently on site and have begun construction, while PJ Dick is setting the steel framework for the new 84 Lumber building. Along with the excitement of new construction, the process has been started to remove one of the surcharges on the Newbury Market site. For photos and further descriptions of this progress please see below.

Please consult the site maps below as a reference to photo location and direction.


(Newbury Market)

(Point 1, Newbury)

Before getting into the construction update, please be aware that we have placed home site signs for each lot at Newbury. Take a drive up or stop in our sales center to better acquaint yourself with all that Newbury has to offer.

(Point 2, Newbury)

Let’s start by focusing on the work of the three members of our Builder’s Guild. These photos show the Deklewa team working to reach the foundation level of this cottage home. The excavator is clearing dirt to a specific level, which is measured via a laser running from the device attached the long pole seen in the second shot.

(Point 3, Newbury)

This photo was taken across the street from the previous set of shots. You can see the Deklewa crew working on the left side of the photos, and as we continue along the road we’ll come upon the other builder’s sites.

(Point 4, Newbury)

Along the northernmost portion of the site road, a Park home with a walk-out basement is being constructed by Heartland Homes. The structure you see is a series of panels, which are being used as a form for the pouring of the foundation.

(Point 5, Newbury)

This shot was taken from the future backyard of this lot and shows the other side of the form as well as the extra panels that were not used.

(Point 6, Newbury)

We move next to the home that is furthest along at Newbury, a manor home from Stambrosky Home. The crew is currently framing the walls as the foundation has already been completed.

(Point 7, Newbury)

The frame is completed on the ground before being erected as part of the home.

(Point 8, Newbury)

These photos provide a look at the seal around the foundation, which will prevent moisture seepage. Features such as this are standard at Newbury and are just a small part of what makes a Newbury home one of the best available in today’s marketplace.

(Point 9, Newbury)

Here a some shots from the side of the residence. These two photos provide a good look at the convenience of a walk-out basement and good idea of the size of the backyard.

For more information, please contact a sales representative or simply take a ride up the site drive and check it out for yourself. Now we’ll move into an update of the Newbury Market site.

(Point 1, Newbury Market)

We start with a wide look at most of the Newbury Market site. The center of this shot will soon be the center of activity for over one million square feet of retail and office  space.

(Point 1, Newbury Market)

These photos were taken from the same location, and a provide closer look at two areas adjacent to each other. The first shot shows the area that will be transformed into the entrance of the retail development, while the second photo shows the grocer surcharge that has been standing for the past few months.

(Point 3, Newbury Market)

(Point 4, Newbury Market)

This group of photos details the process of removing a surcharge that has stood through completion. Engineers verified that the surcharge had sufficiently compacted the ground enough for construction to begin, so the operation began to remove all the dirt.

Now we’ll head over and take a look at the 84 Lumber site, which has a crane working to move steel framing.

(Point 5, Newbury Market)

Above you can see the steel frame being erected for the main office/showroom of the new 84 Lumber. The crane on the right side of the building and the crew members are positioning the steel on the ground in these photos before it is raised and put into place.

(Point 6, Newbury Market)

The rest of the 84 Lumber site will be home to storage facilities and this area sits slightly below the main building. This shot provides a look and the sloped drive that leads to the rest of the site.

(Point 7, Newbury Market)

These photos give you a look at the footer for the storage warehouse as it will sit next to retaining wall.

(Point 8, Newbury Market)

This update comes to close will a view of the brick being laid as part of the foundation for the storage warehouse. The area next to the newly constructed foundation wall will be back filled and the operation will continue around the outline of the structure.

Our next update will feature progress reports on the home construction at Newbury as well as the continued efforts in completing the showroom for 84 Lumber. We will also be featuring some photos of the new landscaping around our sales center in a future blog post.
